My apologies on the delay in posting, I was without Internet for the last week. So, after returning from Iraq, I continued my journey in eastern Turkey. At this point I was getting a little tired out of the traditional Muslim areas during Ramadan (missing the simple things, like easy access to food during the day).

I am not really sure what they are trying to do, but surely there must be a more humane way of trying to increase the population of these cats. The cats themselves were cute, the gene for the different colored eyes must have been on the male chromosome as many of the females only had the same colored eyes, the males all had different colorEd ...
